A badness rumor has been growing around the world that Christ Brown has died. Chris Brown did not get shot dead on July 17. An unfounded rumor began to circulate on social media saying that the controversial singer had been killed in a shooting. This rumor can be disproved through the fact that Brown, 30, has been posting on his Instagram page as normal on the day of his alleged slaying. Heavy has reached out to Brown’s management for comment on the hoax.


The Rumor Is Likely Based on the Recirculation of a Fake News Story From April 2019

The rumor likely comes from the recirculation of a fake news article from April 2019 from the No Chill Zone. The story says that two women came to Brown’s home in Tarzana, Los Angeles, and got into an argument. That argument was purported to have escalated to the point where one of the women shot Brown dead. The shooting resulted in a massive standoff with legions of the LAPD officers as well as helicopters surrounding Brown’s home. A YouTube video that allegedly showed the standoff from inside of the home has since been deleted and the account terminated.
